Odin Sphere is a side-scrolling action game for the PS2 set in the fantastical world of Erion that follows the stories of five warriors beset by tragedy, torment, and hunger. The little girl falling asleep in her mother's attic above is Alice. She's the one who reads those epic tales of war, conflict, and cooking.
Playing this game for a few minutes got me hooked. The illustration is magnificent. The plot is compelling and the characters rich. The acting is smart. The game is so good that it compelled me to go LP another game by the same company that wasn't nearly as good. I rather like this game.
K1wi will be joining me for this one, too. Because of her new life on the moon by way of the antipodes and our collaboration taking place by what amounts to arcane astrological ritual, I will not be able push out updates more frequently than two per week.
